You will fall in love with this spectacular 3 story limestone townhouse nestled along the Windsor Terrace / Kensington border. This classically designed beauty, (circa 1900), sits on an elongated lot of 120 x 20'. Its stately faade, crafted in the Renaissance Revival style, is festooned in beautiful swag with charming details. Decorative ironwork, ornate bay windows and a deep front garden enhance this property's curb appeal.
The primary living unit is a spacious duplex that is entered through the garden level. It is no wonder that Brooklyn baseball legend, Eugene De Montreville, chose this location to be the site of his 1917 nuptials. The expansive parlor is adorned in beautiful woodwork, including original coffered ceilings, rich wood wainscotting, and impeccably preserved parquet flooring. The traditional shelf mantel has been modified to include a faux flame inlay, creating a charming place to sit and watch the embers glow.
There is an oversized kitchen that will easily accommodate a full-size dining table. The room is bright and airy, with ample wood cabinetry and dark granite counter tops. Stainless-steel appliances add a modern touch. A home office zoom room and a full bath are located off the kitchen. The doorway leads to an expansive backyard, tastefully covered in herringbone pavers. A glorious Japanese cherry tree greets as you exit, and will be the focal point of all eyes.
The second floor of the duplex is accessed by an interior staircase. This level has a flex layout, with 3+ bedrooms. Parquet flooring and beautiful millwork abound. The updated bathroom has a deep soaking tub. The spacious laundry room, formerly a kitchen, is fully equipped with a complete set of cabinets and counter tops. There remains a functional sink and appliance connections. This level can also be accessed from the main building entrance, creating the potential to use this unit as an independent apartment.
A lovely two bedroom rental unit is located on the 3rd floor. This delightful space has an identical layout to the second level. With coffered ceilings, stunning built in cabinetry and parquet flooring, this rental unit would not sit vacant long.
Prospect Park is just a few shorts blocks away. The F and G Subway line, and the express bus to Manhattan are a few minutes walk. Green markets, food co-ops, locally owned cafes, shops and restaurants are all within easy walking distance. Zoned for PS 130 the Parkside School.
This property is a legal three family, currently being used as a two. The immaculate full cellar, accessed via interior stairs, has 8 ceilings.
